talo is one of the really big distributers and buy in very high quantity, so high they are able to order special runs of guns with features you wont normally find in standard offerings.
for example i have a pair of ruger new vaquero with 4.62" barrels stainless in 45colt with 45acp cylinders, these are only available via davidson's an outfit in competition with talo and just as big.
these outfits listen to customer requests and order special runs if something is popular enough they think they can sell them all.
i frequently hit the davidson and talo sites looking for unique versions of guns as their catalogues change frequently and they sometimes have really cool stuff. its how i found my pink and black tigerstripe sw15-22
this is a talo edition of a colt 1911. colt doesnt make them normally in royal blue and its probably the single most beautiful 1911 ive ever seen
